This New York Times bestselling anthology features stories from ten inspiring young women who joined President Barack Obama’s administration in their 20s with the hope of making a difference. They recall–fondly and with humor and a dose of humility–what it was like to literally help run the world. Full of wisdom they wish they could impart to their younger selves and a message about the need for more girls in government, these recollections are about stepping out into the spotlight and up to the challenge–something every girl can do.
